The Scopes Trial was about evolution. It was called the Trial of the Century. The legal battle took place in a tiny courthouse in Dayton, Tennessee. The courthouse has been fixed up. The basement now holds a Scopes Trial museum. Entry is free.
Last month, the town held its yearly event to remember the trial.
A Major Event
The trial took place over two weeks in July 1925.
